And the world didn't come to an end, and the person who asked me didn't shoot me on sight! !! What a revelation !!
I have just had a friend call in to ask if I could prepare 60 scones for a "do" in the village at the beginning of April, I agreed to that, cos I can do it standing on my head with my eyes shut, ...... not a pretty picture !!! Hey ho, she then asked whether I could help with the tea party that they are for. I drew myself up to my full 5'6" and said "no, sorry I can't commit to that, so far ahead as I don't know how I'll be feeling". she accepted that and said well lets see on the day, but I know that having produced the scones in the morning I will be heading to the beddery in exhaustied state. I am a real people pleaser and do get put on even though people know I struggle.....every August we have a village fair and for the last six years I've produced up to 250 scones for them...it rendered me incapable for days after, but I did it......now I done it once, maybe I can do it again, normally I say no in my head and yet when I open my mouth the words "oh yes, that be fine" come out instead and I am left befuddled, or should I say even more than my routine befuddled state, as to how it has altered between head and mouth..........oh dear I fear I should consign myself the bin
